Ah, the Bowery in its “glory” days! Seedy, scandalous, dirty, exciting place. To get a feeling of those times, see “She done him Wrong” (1933) with Mae West and a very young Cary Grant. It’s a street in lower Manhattan stretching from Chatham Square to...More

Nice area to walk around and see the old and new buildings. Do some research so you don't wander around aimlessly, there is a lot of history in NYC neighborhoods.

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
